Heyo! :D

So here's the deal. :P

I am working on a story. And the plot is in Quebec, Canada. I have been there and I've been trying to remember specific details, especially about Old Quebec. By the way, I forgot everything about it. The trip was like, I dunno, two years ago? :|

But anyways, that's not the point. I want as much details about Old Quebec as possible. Especially if you've been to the restaurants and museums. ;)

Also, like I said, I'll give you points depending on the info you give me.


If ya tell me:
2-3 things --> 100 points
4-6 things--> 200 points
7-10 things--> as much as you want but it can be 1000 or below it


I really appreciate that you read this for me! Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing replies.

NOTE: BE HONEST, PLEASE.

Hi!

I went to Canada for a vacation a when I was a teenager. I live in the states. We went to Niagara Falls and went on Maid of the Mist boat tour of the falls. We (me, my brother, and his girlfrend at the time) went to Quebec, Montreal, and Ottawa.

We went during the Spring. The tempature was comfortable.

1. Canada looked like a mini Europe. (I'v never been to Europe, but I want to go REALLY bad.) Building were built with stones. There were cobblestones in the street. Similer to Europe.

3. Real Maple Syurp. 100% REAL Maple Syurp was everywhere. It was infused in various food items. They even had candy that was crystallized maple syurp.

3 A frence inflance is in Canada. They had french food, like Crepes and more. French-Canadian is quiet big in Canada. They founded Canada in the 16th Cantry.

This just what I remember of the top of my head.

Here is some articals.

https://www.britannica.com/place/Canada

(Sorry if the above from Britannica is the same artical.)

This sounds ineresting! What genra is your story?

Oh, and I'v been to the Canada Parliament. It was kinda funny, because when we went there, there were a group of people in front of the building. Some were singing the Canadian Natinal Atheam. They were singing it so badly. I (think) that some were singing the American Natinal Anthem, too. At the same time.

Oh, @queenofscience, thanks so much! I'll send of 200 points your way asap. <3 It's all very helpful, and I'm def using this information for draft 2.

The genre is mostly drama and teen fiction. My characters go to Quebec at one point, so I needed to know more information so I could get the details right. Thanks again! :)
